Wanna come to work with me?

Remember when we were kids and there was a day when your parents got to take you to work for a day?  It was called take your child to work day or some shit like that.
Well today I am going to do a

Take a blog reader to work day.

I work for a Repo Company
I am going to give some insight to what it is I do all day long. (LONG is the key word)
I get up at 7 am and get ready to make my hour drive to work so I can be there by 8:45 am.  I am the first one to the office so I open up shop.  Then I get all of the paperwork out of the trucks from the nights repos.  Our night drivers have anywhere from 10 to 15 accounts that they will chase on a given night.  Our good drivers will on average get 5 cars a night, and the average drivers will get 2 to 3 cars a night.

I write up the invoices on all the cars we picked up and get them on the boss' desk.  Look throught the files and see if there is anywhere we can go look for some of the cars during the daytime.  Jobs, people may work nights so we go back to the home, impounds, voluntary repo's, those kind of things.

After that is done I get to my own work

I have my own files to call, trying to find where these
people are hiding their cars.

These are my WMR's = Weapons of Mass Reposessions

Here are some examples of the way a call to a debtor might go

Me- Can we pick the car up
Debtor- Yes

Me- Can we pick the car up
Debtor- No
Me- Ok (so I then call and trick the debtors family for new info)
(hours later)
Debtor- You sorry M-fer you came and stole my car
Me- Yes, thank you

Me- Can we pick the car up
Debtor- When you find it! Asshole
Me- Ok, well we can get a warrant for your arrest for theft
Debtor- I aint stupid, no you can't
Me- Ok
(weeks later)
Warrant Hearing Filed and Date Set

Me- We filed for the warrant, can we have the car
Debtor- F You
Me- Ok
(weeks later)
Warrant Issued by the Judge

Me- Can we have the car NOW
Debtor- (crying) yes
Me- Thought so----stupid ass

After a long day that usually ends about 8 pm, I head home to T and the 4 C's

If it was a good day, I made alot of people mad.

These are some of our trucks
We have 9 total

Very Nice trucks
And a impound yard full of cars....Is yours in here?
Oh, just a reminder, there is always a way to get your car

We also use boots.

So I hope you have enjoyed coming to work with me today.

I SHOULD go to work with you! This would be a great job to profile for my evening newscast... and my DH (I know you love hearing about him) would love to shadow you too. He considers your job the "unofficial" arm of law enforcement.

Too funny! I think I'm going to add this job to the list of ones I don't sounds too much like the one I just left - teaching highschool. Change "Can we have the car now?" to any of the following: "Did you do your homework?", "Would you please sit down and get to work?" or "Keep your hands to yourself" but leave all the reponses the same as the ones you get.

I'm sorry, but that is kinda funny. I can't say much about my work, "security", I deal with the same people, and worse.

Thanks for the tour, pretty cool!

Stay safe bro,

Well, to tell you the truth, not really :-) I would have preferred a trip to a cake factory or something. But, there are people who can't pay their payments and there are people who repo said stuff. That's you, and it's what's gotta be done. Me? I'd be scared for my life. Some people are crazy.
